Three Blushers for Autumn

Yes, I am writing yet another autumn beauty post. Promise I'll reign it in soon. Maybe. I'm kind of a blush hoarder. I have far more, be they palettes or singles, than I could realistically ever use up, yet I continue to add more to my collection. Recently, I've been a bit more reasonable (and shifted my hoarding to lipsticks), so I've really been making an effort to reach for blushers that I haven't used all that much. With it being pumpkin season and all, I've autumnal-ized (defs not a real word) my whole makeup wardrobe, including my blushers. I've switched up the ones I reach for most regularly, so I thought I'd share three with you that I've been loving lately!

NYX Powder Blush in Cinnamon - So, I can't seem to find this online anywhere. Sorry! I therefore have a sneaking suspicion that they're discontinuing this whole line of blushers, which is tragic as they were some of my favourites. I've still seen some of these in store, so if you see this shade, grab it. It looks crazy in the pan. Like the kind of red that'll give you a ruddy and/or feverish look, but if you use the lightest of hands, it's an absolute stunner. It's one of those shades that leaves you looking like you've been on a brisk autumn walk and have returned rosy cheeked. As opposed to having spent the day sat in front of Netflix, eating biscuits and staring at your own reflection between episodes. Basically a keeper.

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Cherub - I don't think there's been a blush roundup post that I haven't stuck this one in. I know I go on and on about how good this is, but it's been a while so I'm going to do it again. If you fancy a blusher that's going to really stay put through wind, rain and perhaps a few cold-induced, watery-eyed tears then this is your guy. The shade is appropriate for pretty much any makeup look and it's waterproof. All you need is a drop of this for both cheeks, stippled on with a brush or blended in with a beauty blender and you're good to go.

H&M Powder Blush in Apricot - Look how pretty this colour is. I mean, just look at it. If you want to go for really grungey autumnal makeup, with warm-toned shadow and a browny-nude lip then this will just add that touch of glow back into your complexion, without messing with the general look. It's a beautiful browny-peach shade and it's super affordable. Plus, H&M does a pretty darn good job with their packaging too!

So there we have it, a roundup of the blushers that I've been cracking out for this autumnal weather. None of these are insanely pricey either, and they're all fantastic quality! Definitely a few to swatch if you pass a counter! What're some of your favourite blush shades?

Don't forget to follow along!
